Animal Totem


Animal Totem

With its long neck, its 50-centimetre tongue (19 inches), the size of its heart, and the way it communicates with its fellow creatures, the giraffe is an animal rich in symbolic meanings. It generally represents:

  • The lifting of the spirit
  • Sincerity
  • Kindness and gentleness
  • Inner calmness
  • Seeing beyond appearances, opening of the “sixth sense” and psychic abilities
  • The influence or appeal of exoticism
  • A gentle awareness of one’s life’s challenges
  • The union of the forces of earth and sky
  • Harmony between carnal and emotional/spiritual aspirations
  • An ability to “stand out”, to stand out in a crowd.
